The first car- load of oranges from California this was shipped to Chicago this rooming by W. B. Strong nd entered a cab and was driven away. He was recognized by the crowd, however, before he reached the sab, and was greeted with groans and ihouta of "Chief Justice Healy." The crowd was so dense that it was with some difficulty that Parnell made bis way through. Finally he reached a cab, which he entered with Joseph E, Kenny, when the crowd surrounded the cab, unharnessed the horses and palled him through the dark streets until they reached Kenny's house. As the cab rolled along the streets the crowd followed singing God Save Ireland." Parnell gave active exer- cise to a dozen stalwart policemen who followed. Upon his arrival at Kenny's house Parneli made a brief speech to the crowd. Later in the day he will attend a meeting of a committee of the National League. DUBLIN, Dec. newspaper United Ireland has got into trouble through its persistent advocacy of the retirement of Parnell, who is one of the directors of the company owning the paper.

When Bodkin entered the office he found Parnell in possession. Parnell, in the presence of the directors, read the articles of association under which the company was organized, and then ordered the Sheriff -to eject Bodkin. The latter made an ineffectual resist- ance. A' desperate row occurred in the down-stairs office between the Sheriff's officers and the sub-editors. Sticks and stools were used and the air was filled with flying missies. Finally, after a sharp and fierce struggle, the sub-editors were put out of tiie building. The news of the seizure 'created a great excitement, and a mob sur- rounded the office. Parnell later addressed the staff, the members of which promised to serve him during the remainder of the crisis. Parnell placed Leamy in charge of the paper. It is staled that Parnef 1 owns 374 of the 500 shares of the capital stock of the company. Dr. Joseph E. Kenny, Justin McCarthy and the re- mainder of the editors who were ejected will sue Parnell for assault. Bodkin, in an interview subsequent to his removal, said the edition of the paper which Parnell destroyed con- tained many resolutions adopted by- provincial branched Of the National League opposing Parnell. Also a cable dispatch from O'Brien say ing: "Abide by my instructions, and insist moder- ately but firmly npon Parnell's retire- ment as a sine qua non."
